Mentawai Surf Camp
From $1760 AUD 10 Nights- group booking discounts
Welcome to Mentawai Surf Camp a private 6 bedroom guesthouse catering for just 4-12 people situated amongst the world renowned waves of “Playgrounds” in the Mentawai Islands.
Our beach front location, with views towards Beng Bengs (and other waves), is second to
none. We proudly boast a number of waves within just 5-10 minutes from our shore aswell
as over 15 world class waves within 15-25 mins.
A typical day at Mentawai Surf Camp as follows:
The evening before surfing we’lll discuss how we should start the next morning. Usually we will wake up around 6am and try to leave before 7am. On some occasions we will leave earlier, other times later. During every boat trip we’ll bring along a gallon of water plus a cold refreshment and some biscuits. Guest are welcome to buy sodas or beers and bring them along in the boat fridge. Just before departing, a quick wind and tide check to decide where to head first & if unclear we will head to our closest breaks and assess the situation from there.
We will usually surf until midday (or later) & come back for lunch and then head out again in the afternoon. We usually return from surfing around dusk, where we will head back to the camp cruising through wondrous sunsets for some well deserved dinner and epic evenings at the bar!
Catering for ONLY 4-12 guests, the camp is an extremely comfortable and affordable option for surfers of all abilities – and those looking to avoid the crowds of the other camps.

Pei Pei Lodge is ideally situated in arguably
one of the best surfing areas in the world, the Mentawai Islands. Although spread out over 100’s of kilometres of coastline, this particular area of South Siberut, Nyang Nyang Island & Playgrounds – is the most condensed wave
rich coastline by far. Made famous by the Quiksilver Indies Trader in the 90’s, then by countless surf movies such as September Sessions and Young Guns (to name but a few) as well as gracing the covers of all the major Surfing Magazines – this is the place every
surfer dreams of coming.
Without doubt, this is a year round surf destination. Ground swells run incredibly consistently between May and October, when
on any given day, many of the waves are “on”. The main line-ups can be busy on their day but with so many other waves around, crowds are easily avoided. In the so called “off season”, during the rest of the year, swells are smaller
in size but big enough to light up many of the set-ups. You’re not guaranteed to surf the flagship spots, but you’ll certainly surf world-class waves – often alone or just a few others about. And occasionally you’ll score the waves
of your life if you’re lucky enough to time one
of the more sparse ground swells.
